 In 2017, the global military expenditure amounted to 17390 billion US dollars, the first three US China Saudi Arabia.


The latest analysis of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute shows that the global military expenditure continued to grow for 13 years from 1999 to 2011, maintaining a relatively constant trend from 2012 to 2016, and the total global military expenditure rose again in 2017. The report also mentions that global military spending accounted for 2.2% of global gross domestic product (GDP) in 2017, that is, $230 per person. The main reasons for the increase in world military expenditure in recent years are the large increase in military spending in Asia, Oceania and the Middle East countries such as China, India and Saudi Arabia, Tian Nan, a researcher at the SIPRI weapons and military expenditure program (AMEX), explained, military spending is clearly from Europe to the world. The Atlantic area leave. Where does global military spending turn? The report says military spending in Asia and Oceania has risen for twenty-ninth consecutive years. Chinas military expenditure in 2017 reached $228 billion, up 5.6% from 2016; Indias military expenditure in 2017 reached $63 billion 900 million, up 5.5% from the previous year, and South Koreas military expenditure in 2017 was 39 billion 200 million dollars, up 1.7% from the same year. In this regard, Simon Waesemann, a senior researcher at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institutes weapons and military expenditure program (AMEX), attributed it to tensions between China and the surrounding countries. He said: tensions between China and many other countries continue to push up military spending in Asia. Russias military spending has dropped markedly, and military spending in central and Western Europe has increased. SIPRIs latest analysis shows that in 2017, Russian military spending was $66 billion 300 million, down 20% from 2016, the first decline since 1998. Military modernization is still a priority in Russia, but the military budget is constrained by the economic problems that the country has experienced since 2014, said Simon Waesemann Simon Weitzman, a senior researcher at the Stockholm Institute for International Peace Researchs weapons and military expenditure program (AMEX). According to the analysis, military spending in central and Western Europe increased by 12% and 1.7% respectively in 2017, partly due to the increasing threat from Russia. Many European countries are NATO members and agree to increase the military budget within this framework. In 2017, the total military expenditure of all 29 NATO members amounted to US $900 billion, accounting for 52% of the global military expenditure. Before the National Peoples Congress, Zhang Yesui, a spokesman for the National Peoples Congress, said that whether the national defense budget accounted for the gross domestic product, the proportion of national fiscal expenditure, or the per capita amount, the level of Chinas national defense input was lower than the worlds major countries. China has always adhered to the path of peaceful development and pursued a defensive national defense policy. Chinas development will not pose a threat to any country. In recent years, China has made a moderate increase in national defense input, and a considerable part of it is to make up for the shortcomings of the past. It is mainly used to update the weapons and equipment, improve the living conditions of the soldiers and the training and living conditions of the grass-roots units.
